History- Why did the USA become increasingly involved in South East Asia from 1950-64 watch

    • Thread Starter

    This was set as an essay question but we haven't covered this area very well apart from watching lots of documentaries.

    We normally discuss three different (broad) factors: for the first factor, I would say Communist expansionism including Domino theory, NSC-68 etc. and this would be the single most important factor
    For the second, I thought it would be wise to mention the political pressure that the presidents were under, both from their own administration and other governments; I thought this could also be very important as a factor but slightly less than the communist expansionism
    Lastly, US prestige- this was to be the least important reason but there is still enough evidence to argue for this

    What do you think- do these factors seem reasonable?
